Launched on the market in 2003, the second series arrived in 2010 and the third in 2017. In the coming months Porsche Cayenne will land with a decisive restyling that will concern more the interior and the technology than the external design. The first official tests started in Los Angeles, after a busy program of tests along the coast of California and in the Mojave desert in Nevada for almost a month. They will soon return to Germany where the wear of the various components will be studied, before launch or further tests. The large SUV is preparing to challenge its direct rivals BMW X5, Mercedes Benz GLE And Range Rover Sport.
Porsche Cayenne: new engines and technologies
Small tweaks to the look of the Porsche Cayenne will cover the bumper and front fenders, new LED headlights and rear upgrades. We will add new paint colors while standard rims will be 20 inches. The most significant revisions will be to the engines, as Porsche has introduced more powerful versions of existing powertrains and new engine options.

The new Porsche Cayenne will also mount plug-in hybrid engines, with a battery that has grown to 25.9 kWh, with full electric self-sufficiency not yet specified but certainly greater than 50 km. Also available E-Hybrid which combines the 3.0 V6 biturbo to the electric motor for a total of 470 HP and 650 Nm and the Turbo S E-Hybrid which should exceed the current 680 hp.
The strong point of the restyling will be the suspensions, the reworked braking system, with a new electronic booster that provides recovery of kinetic energy until a stop. The cabin houses a 12.7-inch curved digital display, a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen and an additional 10.9-inch display for the front passenger.
